Federal Anti-Drug Budget is almost $22 billion this year

The ONDCP just issued the FY 2010 Budget Summary to accompany the National Drug Control Strategy. The tweaked drug control spending (that leaves out anti-drug spending by the Bureau of Prisons and other agencies) for FY 2009 is $14,844,700,000.

But this year ONDCP includes an appendix that provides the expenditures and requests for the anti-drug programs of the Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Forest Service, the Federal Judiciary, etc. for an additional $6,899,100,000 in FY 2009. I did the math and the FY 2009 total is $21,743,800,000 !

For FY 2010, I calculate the total request is $21,867,400,000.
